Some TUAW readers have been concerned that in the Messages app under iOS 7, all they see is a person’s first name in the header. It turns out that there’s a setting to help change that information so that you can see the full name, first name and last initial, nickname or some other choices. In this TUAW Video Tip, you’ll see just how one setting controls how names are viewed on your device.

As with all of our videos, this one can be resized to full screen for easier viewing.
